1. Interior Offensive Line

The 49ers had a fairly decent year in terms of protecting their quarterback. Finishing with 36 sacks allowed, it was enough to land them just outside of the top-10 in sacks per game.

It wasn’t the worst output, but it wasn’t the greatest either and it’s just like I said before, fairly decent. With that said, I would like to see them strengthen that area in order to make a nice consistent run at the Lombardi Trophy.

By no means did left guard Laken Tomlinson and/or right guard Mike Person have a bad season, however, I would totally be on board with them to serve as legitimate reserves. We can never have too much of a good thing, right?

Even the current backups, notably Justin Skule and Daniel Brunskill, had their moments this season which helped maintain the 49ers offensive attack.

Apparently, management shares the same thoughts because they have recently tendered a one-year contract to the aforementioned Brunskill. This is a good move because it signifies how committed the 49ers are to sustaining their success.

Continuity and chemistry just may be enough to trump talent and big names! They must continue trending upward and building on that all-important, locker-room brotherhood.
